Letter inside this small pocket Bible, dated Dec4, 1863 is from MARINE HOSPITAL St Louis, and is hand written on a single lined piece of paper.  

It reads:

Mr. James TOMKINS, I write you at the request of your brother john who came here last week from Memphis quite low with consumption, He is better to-day, and may continue to improve, but is very doubtful. He bears his sickness with fortitude and cheerfulness and I hope it will be bl??? to his salvation. It is my office to afford him religious consolation, and I will try to lead him to a peaceful trust in Christ as his Saviour. I hope you will write to him, and if possible you had better visit him. He may not live long , or if he does will hardly ever be a well man again, May the Lord bless both him and You. 

Very Respt Jas A PAIGE Hospital Chaplain.
